Subject Setting response timeout
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2012 12:42:38 GMT

I am working on an Apache module where the response times for each request
are very stringent. I want to be able to return a custom error deck in case
I am not able to process the request within the threshold instead of a
timeout response. I have added a check in the request handler code to check
if a threshold time has elapsed and return a custom error in that case.
However it appears that this code is not invoked at all for most requests.

>From what I see in Apache code, the request / response is actually
synchronous. So the next request is not read in until the response for the
first one is sent out.

So, if a previous request takes a longer time, the response times for
subsequent requests is affected.

Any guidelines on how to handle this would be greatly appreciated.
